I’m still far from my glorious goal to wake up at 5am and get in a wonderfully zen 5 mile run before breakfast. But I got up earlier. And I ran my 3 miler according to plan.
I did get up early enough to have my own home ‘made’ breakfast consisting of greek yogurt, strawberries and almonds. I even packed my lunch For the past couple of weeks I have been scrambling to get to work on time, snatching up a ‘perfect oatmeal’ from Starbucks, yes to nuts, no to sugar and dried fruit. Delicious, but expensive, and not so zen eating quickly before getting down to business in the office.
Getting back from work I had some pita chips and hummus (lemon flavored), with broccoli and tomatoes. I hit the road at 7pm. The workout plan called for a 3mile walk/run, and I did not walk. The weather was brisk, so I tried out my gloves, which I bought for dog-walking, and turned out great.
Workout summary: 3 miles in 34’29”. Clearly there’s room for improvement, but that’s what the 10 weeks are for !
I’ve been tracking workouts with my i-pod at the moment. For Christmas I received a Garmin Fenix GPS watch from my Dad, and I plan on using this in the future to track and plot runs. Stay tuned for upcoming maps !
